Ya know when you put something off it only makes the job larger? That’s today’s blog for me. I was kinda consumed with focusing on the ideas last week that I didn’t get around to the blog. I have a few minutes now so let’s do this before it gets out of hand.
This is a good cartoon if I can say so myself. Even if no one in the Bush administration mocked the Christian Right, you can still argue they took them for granted and used them politically (duh.). But they can do it because where else will the Christian Right go? They’ll still vote in large numbers for Republicans as long as the administration keeps screaming about gay marriage, immigration, a national language and flag burning. Oh, and terrorism.
I felt good about this one as well. I think it’s a great way to make China pressure N. Korea.
For this toon to work you have to know Barbra Streisand is a huge Democrat and she recently dropped an F bomb. After knowing all that, it’s funny. Here’s my political prognostication. The Democrats take the House while the GOP keeps the Senate. We have two years of lame duckness with the White House. In two years the GOP retains the White House because the Democrats don’t have anybody who can beat a Guilani or a McCain. Sorry, liberals.
And something even more local. I’m getting mixed reports on what actually happened in this story. I received a phone call saying the information in the FLS story was wrong, but that’s because the reporter was lied to. I don’t know what’s true and I’m hoping for more information at some point.
Also, I’ve been drawing on cheapo paper this week as I’m out of the good stuff. I’m really hoping my shipment arrives today. So if something sucks, let’s blame the paper.
